    An unusual item, WWI flags of the early war allies made from melted plastic? on glass. Not seen another like it and it has a framers mark for a firm local to me. Not sure if mass produced or a homemade item.

    Hi all, Sticking with the last post, I hope that you will be interested in this silk. The flags are the White Ensign of the RN, The Red Ensign of the MN and the Blue Ensign for Goverment Fleet. The others are nationals. This silk is Victorian and probably dates to the South African wars. Missing from the life belt, is a photo almost certainly of a Royal Navy Seaman.

    Now, Off on a bit of a tangent but still around the turn of the 20th Century. This large metal and enameled sign is for recruits to His Majesty's Army. His Majesty being King Edward VII, Queen Victoria's Son who was crowned in 1902 and who was succeeded by his son King George V, Edward VIII, George VI and Elizabeth II. These signs were primary targets for kids with catapults and air rifles etc and it was usualy these weapons and their projectiles which caused the damage. None-the-less, an interesting wall piece in my opinion and one which graces my garage door!! Madam, the Martian will not let me put it up in the lounge!! Why not I wonder????
    Cheers Michael R

    hi All, Another minor change in direction and on to Italian Uniforms. I find it supprising that given the number of allied troops engaged during the Second World War fighting against the Italians how few of their military items turn up as souveniers. For every one Italian uniform that I have come accross, I have seen probably several hundred German items?? This uniform came my way a long time back and it looks right to me but I am happy to be corrected. Your opinions and comments are, as always, invited as I know very little about Iti gear and this is an oddity to my collection.
    Cheers Michael R

    Hi Rene, A nice grouping and thank you for showing both uniform jackets. Whilst I like the Italian jacket, I find your ANZAC jacket more interesting. An Officer's jacket made for a Sergeant and ranked to a Major. Had his name been Smith I would have suspected that it had been played with but with a name like "Quilty", not a lot of Quiltys about!!!! I wonder if, as a Sergeant, he had been selected for a commission and had the uniform tailored? Ergo the tailor has used his current rank on the label and on commissioning he ranked it accordingly not having ranked it to Sergeant?? Another historical annomily. I love odd ball items that have a bit of unusual history to them. In any event our Mr Quilty did well to attain the rank of Major. Did he get any further? I have a Group Captain's uniform with an RAF LSGC medal ribbon which means that he had to have served at least 15 years, or possibly 18, in the Ranks and them made Group Captain subsequent to commissioning. What you may call a late starter? Some going though!!

    Thank you once again and happy hunting. Regards Michael R

    Here's an "Odd" one. Thought you would find this interesting. Found this magazine at our family vacation house. Who knows how long it was sitting there.

    Some "stylin" threads here!! I've included one of the pages with the knitting instructions if your interested in making one for yourself! My favorite is the knit helmet liner!

    Hi Mike, I reckon the silk in post 423 is WW1 in date and Chinese made. Reason being, I have a similar one, but Army.

    Cheers, Ade.
